5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously Deep, Seriously Beautiful., 9 Dec 2006
This review is from: Silent Feet: COLOURS (Audio CD)
To think that one of the greatest recorded performances of the 20th century lurks deep in the bowels of Amazon UK with just one review - and a four star one at that, is to me, one the great human tragedies. This album oozes a lyrical beauty guaranteed to make your cortex throb for decades (around three for me so far). Further, I have still yet to hear recording and production quality to better this - and I am an avid consumer of CD's and Vinyl.

Each piece is sumptuously produced and played by some of the planet's greatest living musicians - Eberhard Weber (bass), Rainer Bruninghaus (piano), Charlie Mariano (sax), and John Marshall (drums). In fact, Marshall's drumming here is so good that this album would still be worth the maximum stars had it been a totally solo performance. Together, the band produce music that would have made Mozart wet himself had he heard it. Take the finest moments from Jazz, Classical and Post-Rock, place in blender, add the rarest beauty of the universe, press play and await the arrival of your spirit. It won't take long.

If you are reading this and are capable of breathing and thinking at the same time, then you really must buy this album. It is at the very pinnacle of human artistic achievement and should be played to the aliens when they eventually turn up, as I am sure this is what they will come looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless masterpiece, 3 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silent Feet: COLOURS (Audio CD)
I bought this album on vinyl in the 1970s and again on CD in the 1990s. This and The Following Morning stand together in my view as two of the greatest jazz albums of their type, at the summit of the distinctive ECM sound, and can be listened to again and again without ever feeling like period pieces. The rolling, unfolding, layering nature of Weber's compositions make them almost ambient in places, and the balance of instrumentation is exemplary. For me, a completely indispensable part of a music collection and a source of constant joy.

4.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked classic, 6 Oct 2003
This review is from: Silent Feet: COLOURS (Audio CD)
I first bought 'Silent Feet' in the vinyl days of 1978, a recommendation from a school friend. And it remains one of those few old albums of that now distant decade that I occasionally revisit. It is the title track that I particularly love for Brunninghaus' running style on the piano. Weber's work is at times challenging to the uneducated ear but it is easy to realise that this is a master of his instrument. The opening notes of 'Seriously Deep' - such an evocative title - demonstrate that he, even back in the 1970s, had developed a unique style for the double bass. This is a recording that has stood the test of time and it's well worth a listen.
